If grappling with fake news, social inequality and the politics of climate change is doing your head in, then perhaps it’s time for an Antidote. The Sydney Opera House’s new two-day festival (replacing the Festival of Dangerous Ideas) of performances, talks and experiences aims to provide a platform for people with bold alternatives to the way the world currently operates.
The event will provide an opportunity for audiences to engage with artists, thinkers and doers; curious, forward-thinking souls who are spearheading change of all sorts. Expect dives into North Korea, the ongoing fight for equality and the culture of protest in our current political climate.
The festival will run over the weekend of September 2-3. See our top picks of the exciting festival program below.
